Water System Capacity Baseline Assessment

The 1996 SDWA Amendments required West Virginia to develop a baseline assessment of all water systems by August 6, 2002. The baseline assessment was developed using information provided in a self-assessment survey completed by the water systems and from existing agency compliance and sanitary survey data. The baseline:

  • identifies water systems having the greatest need for assistance
  • establishes a benchmark to measure the effectiveness of assistance programs
  • must be repeated ever three years

Baseline Assessment Survey Form

The repeat assessment helps us evaluate our programs effectiveness helping water systems develop adequate technical, managerial and financial capability.  The latest repeat assessment is available below.
